Managing Member | Financial Planner

khamilton@mfplanners.com

I'm driven to build impactful client relationships and help them achieve their goals. My unique passion lies in crafting tax-efficient income strategies for financial security.

This work is personal because life is short, and I believe it should be spent on our terms—with loved ones and pursuing passions. Creating plans that empower families to enjoy life together and to provide them with financial support in challenging times fills me with pride.

With a background in financial planning since 2010, we founded MFP in 2020, with my focus being in income and tax-efficient planning. I hold certifications as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP®), and Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA®) credential.

Collaborating with me involves insightful conversations, innovative ideas, and options for your active involvement.

I offer best-in-class ideas, frequent communication, and open access. Seeking a plan that thrives in all circumstances, prioritizes tax efficiency, and ensures an enjoyable, digestible experience? Let's connect.

On a personal note, I'm a proud father and husband, passionate about family and sports. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, cooking, gardening, and stargazing in remote areas. I'm also a self-proclaimed aviation and space enthusiast.
